fancypants: a new Bugzilla skin

There’s been a lot recent discussion on Bugzilla’s UI. I figured I’d share some work I started last month on a new non-default skin for bugzilla.mozilla.org. I, along with a few alpha testers, have been using it via userContent.css, and I’m really loving it. It has a lot of things I consider to be improvements, although there’s only so much you can do with pure-CSS skins.

I’m working on bugfixes and tweaks still, but am hoping to have it ready for general use soon.

    That looks really nice! :-) Are you going to release it as a general-purpose Bugzilla skin? If you do, you can link to it from http://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:Addons (that’s where we track things like skins, right now).

    Silly man, for experimentation with styles and CSS, do yourself a favour and install the Stylish extension. With Stylish you can test your CSS dymanically without having to restart your browser.

      @Philip I do development on my own bugzilla installation, and only use userContent.css for releases that I send to testers.

    I like this.
    I want this.

    I believe the Status entry needs more prominence though, as it is easy to miss while scanning my eyes over the page.

    Does bugzilla detect the screen size and font size of the client and choose a layout to fit?
    This wide layout may work fine for people with large screens, but for people with small screens (e.g., netbooks) it could be a pain. Bugzilla is used around the world.

    This requires a theme song. I propose:

    How does show_bug.cgi look like with a few flags and a custom field or two, and with some attachments?
